Episode 38: Distant North (Kungsleden)

In Episode 38, Theo and Bee give us all a New Years gift and tell us about their adventures on the 273 mile (440 km) Kungsleden Trail in northern Sweden.  The couple has lived out of their VW van for the last three years, but took time off from their travels to hike the Kungsleden in the fall of 2015 and release the film Distant North a year later.

Back home in the UK (and from a recently purchased boat), Theo and Bee speak to the logistics of a Kungsleden thru-hike, the arctic weather and scenery, and the abundant wildlife – including a 1000+ caribou herd that surrounded them while on the Trail.  So listen in and discover why The Kungsleden has moved to the top of my list of trails to hike.  And if you really want to tempt yourself, follow this link to watch their film on YouTube.

The Kungsleden will not stay a well-kept secret for long.  So pack your bags, head to Sweden this summer, and hike the trail before the word really gets out.  Or click here to follow Theo and Bee’s next great adventure.
